Ned Yost media session: September 3, 2013
It is September so that means call-ups in the big leagues. This afternoon the Royals recalled righthanders Wade Davis and Louis Coleman from Wilmington. The club also brought up lefthander Donnie Joseph and infielder Johnny Giavotella from the Omaha Storm Chasers.
The Royals selected the contracts of first baseman Carlos Pena and infielder Pedro Ciriaco who had been in Omaha. All six players will be in uniform for tonight’s game.
Ned Yost was asked at his press conference how he will use the players. He noted he would use them when the situation called for it. He was asked specifically about Carlos Pena. The skipper said he is great addition for a pinch-hitting situation and as a late-inning defensive replacement when Billy Butler spells Eric Hosmer at first base, as is the case tonight.
